Other platforms use /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 to support this and
we already detect both:


We could try checking for /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-${host_cpu} but it
doesn't help that Debian is using a non-standard naming for this (amd64 instead
of x86_64, ppc64el instead of ppc64le)

> Here is the result of "ls -l /usr/lib/jvm" with the first columns removed:

> java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64 -> java-7-openjdk-amd64
> java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64 -> java-8-openjdk-amd64
> java-6-openjdk-amd64
> java-6-openjdk-common
> java-7-openjdk-amd64
> java-8-openjdk-amd64

This is no good. We need specific versions of OpenJDK, not whatever random JVM
the user has selected. Besides, we already have
/etc/alternatives/java_sdk_openjdk as a last resort. Don't tell me, Debian
doesn't provide this either?
